I remember being pestered as a kid by my mother to eat a spoonful of chyawanprash during the cold winter months. She would constantly remind us all about the immunity boosting properties of chyawanprash and how it was the best way to keep our bodies warm. While most of us may have wanted to steer clear of this ayurvedic medicine because of its distinct taste and texture - now when I look back at list the ingredients present in it, the magical halo around chyawanprash seems totally deserving.
Chyawanprash is a time tested Ayurvedic formulation of herbs that help in building immunity, thereby protecting us from the many bacterial and viral infections. It is believed that 'Chyawan' was the name of the sage for whom this Ayurvedic formula was concocted to restore his youth and vitality, while 'Prash' translates literally to 'specially prepared food'. This formula can be consumed by just about anyone to benefit from its many healthy properties.
Chyawanprash is made using a variety of Ayurvedic herbs that are believed to be nourishing and healthy. The primary benefit of chyawanprash is to bolster the immune system and to support the body's natural ability to produce red blood cells. It is known to be particularly good for the lungs because it nourishes the mucous membranes and further helps to keep the respiratory passages clear. It is used as a tonic in winters, for further improving natural resistance and lends strength and energy to the body.
